Can't upgrade arts

I did an online update of dapper to edgy by following the instructions
at  It seemed to go well, but...

I seem to have a strange version of libartsc0 installed.  I have a
version of arts that won't update because:
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  arts: Depends: libartsc0 (>= 1.5.5-0ubuntu1) but
1.5.5-0ubuntu1~dapper1 is to be installed
        Depends: libarts1c2a (>= 1.5.5-0ubuntu1) but
1.5.5-0ubuntu1~dapper1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

Even though the error message talks about the packages "to be
installed" they appear to already be installed.

I should say I have an AMD64 system, not a 32 bit system.



Anyone else have this problem?
